Another shooting near a high school football game happened in Fayetteville Friday night. Two people were shot, but are expected to recover.
A similar scene played out at a high school football game in Indianapolis Friday night. Gunshots outside the stadium sent players and coaches bolting for the locker room in the middle of the game. All of it was caught on broadcast footage obtained by ABC News.
After a player gets tackled, at least six gunshots can be heard on the broadcast, causing players, coaches, and fans to immediately start running.
"Unfortunately, folks, that was gunshots," said one of the announcers, who was calling the game for ISC Sports Network.
The game involved Carmel High School and Ben Davis High School.
